HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS on the big screen. It's even more unusual to get to see that film in an actual 35mm presentation, and even rarer to find the film showing at an honest-to-god drive-in theater.
In September, all three will come to pass at the "Go Digital" Classic Retro Horror Weekend event in Montgomery, Pennsylvania. Nostalgic Drive-In Theater Newspaper Ads is co-sponsoring the retro drive-in horror marathon at The Pike drive-in theater. Gates open at 7 p.m. on Sept. 19 and 20. The show begins at 8:30 p.m. beginning with a selection of horror shorts and trailers, followed immediately by screenings of WAR BETWEEN THE PLANETS, HOUSE OF DARK SHADOW, THE HOUSE BY THE LAKE (aka DEATH WEEKEND) and DON'T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT. I've been assured the organizers have secured solid 35mm prints of these movies.
The same four films run both nights at The Pike, located at 5798 U.S. Route 15, Montgomery, Pennsylvania, 17752. If you're able to attend, make sure to come back and tell us about the experience!
